Work To Begin On 110 Queen Street

The latest office development to begin construction in central Glasgow, 110 Queen Street, is soon to get underway.

With construction set to start in January, the curvaceous office building will offer approximately 13,325 square metres of grade A office space, plus about 2,000 square metres of retail and restaurant space on the ground floor. Car parking is provided in the basement.

The scheme has been approved for a sensitive site behind the historic George Square. Due to the view of the building from here and its height, which will be ten floors including the plant levels, this has earned much ire with an unsympathetic façade treatment that contrasts poorly with the surrounding stone buildings.

From other angles however, such as Queen Street itself, the curving dark tinted cladding between the lighter windows, and semi-circular corners, perhaps have a feeling of the famous Daily Express building on Fleet Street, albeit an oversized example.

Designed by Cooper Cromar the £60 million scheme is due to get underway in January with the clearance of the site that’s currently occupied by the Brutalist looking former Royal Bank of Scotland building.
